It has been about two years since Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 7 which ended in disaster for the company, which for those unfamiliar was due to the fact that the Note 7 was shipped out with batteries that were prone to exploding due to certain factors. Samsung has since moved on and apologized for the situation have successfully launched multiple flagships since.

However perhaps to remind users that its phones are safe, Samsung Electronics President Koh Dong-jin was reported to have told reporters that the batteries in the recently-launched Galaxy Note 9 are perfectly safe. He was quoted as saying, “The battery in the Galaxy Note 9 is safer than ever. Users do not have to worry about the batteries anymore.”

Koh also expressed his confidence in the Note 9, believing that the phone will sell better than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8 which was launched last year. He cites how the Note 9’s intelligent camera and improved stylus as being some of the reasons why he thinks the Note 9 will be able to outsell its predecessor.

Of course whether or not this will happen remains to be seen. Companies such as Apple and Samsung used to dominate the smartphone industry, and while they still command a sizeable market share, competitors such as Huawei have been gaining traction and who have recently dethroned Apple to become the world’s second largest smartphone seller.
